Erasmus Bridge 'the Swan', Rotterdam... (+PiP)

Erasmus Bridge 'the Swan', Rotterdam... (+PiP)
I took this picture through glass from above the Euromast.

The Euromast is an observation tower in Rotterdam, Netherlands, designed by Hugh Maaskant constructed between 1958 and 1960.
It was specially built for the 1960 Floriade, and is a listed monument since 2010.

The tower is a concrete structure with an internal diameter of 9 m (30 ft) and a wall thickness of 30 cm (12 in).
For stability it is built on a concrete block of 1,900,000 kg (4,200,000 lb) so that the centre of gravity is below ground.
It has a "crow's nest" observation platform 96 m (315 ft) which was completed in 1968, but regained it when the Space Tower was added to the top of the building in 1970, giving an additional 85 m (279 ft).
Euromast is a member of the World Federation of Great Towers.
------------------------------------------------------

The Erasmus Bridge (Dutch: Erasmusbrug) is a combined cable-stayed and bascule bridge in the centre of Rotterdam, connecting the north and south parts of this city, second largest in the Netherlands. The bridge was named after Desiderius Erasmus a.k.a. Erasmus of Rotterdam, a prominent Christian renaissance humanist.

The 802-metre-long (2,631 ft) bridge across the New Meuse was designed by Ben van Berkel and completed in 1996. The cable-stayed bridge section has a single 139-metre-high (456 ft) asymmetrical pale blue pylon with a prominent horizontal base, earning the bridge its nickname "The Swan".

The southernmost span of the bridge has an 89-metre-long (292 ft) bascule bridge for ships that cannot pass under the bridge. The bascule bridge is the largest and heaviest in Western Europe and has the largest panel of its type in the world.

Estos puentes me hacen acordar a uno que tenemos acá, en Buenos Aires; no sé si son del mismo arquitecto: Calatrava?.

Thank you also for this wonderful compliment Mariano.
This bridge is not from Calatrava, but from Ben van Berkel! It's like a swan, so beautiful when the sun is shining on it...
